Sorry, I should have made it clear that I meant the military aircraft found in EU countries.
The British mostly use Harrier jump jets, Tornado fighter/bombers, and Jaguar fighter/bombers (a joint Anglo/French project). The vertical takeoff capability of the Harriers means that they are often assigned as fighter/bombers to aircraft carriers. An improved version of the Harrier was exported to the USA and is used to support the activities of the US Marines.
As well as the Jaguars, the French mostly use Mirage ground attack fighters.
The Americans have a variety of aircraft stationed in Britain and Germany and many of the American long range bombers used in the invasion of Iraq were operating from bases in the UK.
The Eurofighters are intended to replace the ageing multi-purpose fighters used by EU countries. The problem is that the EU has 15 members, each with its own agenda and another 10 due to join on May 1, and it is impossible to get 25 seperate countries to agree on anything. The long development time means that the Eurofighters are already outclassed by the latest Russian and American fighters.
When you rescue the two greys, it is best to leave their armour alone. It dissapears from your inventory if you take it off, and they are unable to wear armour designed for humans. Happily, their armour seems to be as good as Bio-armour.
